Deane's Comments (rates this release 3/5.0)
A nice sounding collection of recent studio outakes. The packaging is beautiful and includes a 16-page booklet, which has some information about each track. Most of these tracks have either been official released now or are on larger outake collections.

Dale's Comments  (rates this release 2.5/5.0)
This was a pretty nice release at the time it came out, but now it kind of sucks ass. Many of the songs are a little muffled and the bass is too strong. Calhoun Square is incomplete, hell, worse than that it's chopped off at the end right in the middle of a verse! Man do I hate when they do that. Just fade it out early if you have to, but don't just chop it off like that. The version of Empty Room is from the PA and there is some hiss to it, but not too noticeable at lower volumes. Overall this isn't a terrible release, but not worth too much considering you can get all of these songs in the same or better quality on other releases.
